    Large Cherry Bowl

    Here is a bowl that I turned some time ago--roughed out in fall of 07 and finish turned in spring of 08. I finished it with Salad Bowl Finish, and didn't buff it out until a month ago. It sold at a show I did this past weekend. It's about 17 x 5.

    Nobody gets between me and my ice cream......

    'Bout time you showed that one here, Mark.

    Great piece, bud. Most people don't realize how big a 17" bowl is until they see one in person.

    Beautiful Mark!

    It sold pretty quickly compared to how long it took you to finish it.

    Very nice Mark, you could get a few scoops of ice cream in that one!
